    Entertaining and visually beautiful epic. Not great, but good. Recommend for a rental or Netflix.

    Aerial shots zoom along mountaintops, picking out an intrepid band of survivors being pursued by a tribe of face-painted warriors. Am I watching THE LORD OF THE RINGS again? No, it's CENTURION -- with ancient Picts standing in for Orcs. Despite the echos of everything from LOTR to his own DOG SOLDIERS, there's no question that Neil Marshall can direct up a storm. But I think he would have benefited by having someone else take a look at his script.…

    Powered by a stellar cast and buckets of blood, Centurion is a meat-and-potatoes historical actioner about a band of stranded Roman soldiers being stalked by Pict warriors in second-century Scotland. The clashes are ruthless and exciting; it's not surprising at all that director Neil Marshall went on to direct some of Game of Thrones' biggest episodes.

    People, there are giant rolling balls of fire in this movie. And Michael Fassbender! And Jimmy McNulty! Okay, I don't think I need to give you any more reasons to watch.

    In Centurion worden Romeinse soldaten opgejaagd door op wraak beluste Schotse Picts. Tijdens hun gevechten staat de camerasluiter op 90-graden (en/of 45-graden) in plaats van de gebruikelijke 180-graden, wat een desoriënterend effect oplevert dat sinds Saving Private Ryan een terugkerend cliché is in actiefilms. De choreografie van de gevechten zijn extra moeilijk te volgen vanwege een veel te snelle, willekeurig aanvoelende montage. De talenten van onder anderen Michael Fassbender (Hunger) en Dominic West (The Wire) verzuipen in opspattende bloedfonteinen. De echte hoofdrolspelers zijn de woeste, ongerepte bergen en met sneeuw bedekte heuvels in de Schotse hooglanden.

    To be honest, this is my second favorite of all Michael Fassbender's movies, the first of which being Jane Eyre (duh!). JUST SO MANY FEELS, MAN, FEELS!!!

    Another very good movie from Neil Marshall (Doomsday, The Descent). I love how every movie he makes is completely different and original.

    Enjoyable tale of the 9th Roman Legion vs. the Picts of northern Britain from another one of my favorite genre filmmakers. Well acted by Fassbender and crew. Bloody battles, beautiful locations, but the plot kind of falls apart near the end of the film.

    Neil Marshall got horror fans attention with his very good "Dog Soldiers" and his excellent "The Descent". Here in "Centurion" we see him stepping up his ambitions working with a high profile lead (Michael Fassbender) and going for the kind of sword and sorcery period epic that typically costs north of 100 million, but doing it on a much more modest budget. The result well it stumbles to get there, but the second half really works playing to Marshall's forte…

    Whilst it is a far cry from Neil Marshall's excellent The Descent, Centurion still makes up some ground from the appalling Doomsday.
    Michael Fassbender and Dominic West keep the weak script afloat as the repetitive action sequences soon become dull through a lack of originality. Unfortunately all these tricks were already done better almost ten years earlier in Gladiator. The film also takes the historical epic blue grade to new heights, designed to sell the pulpy nature of the story…
